lyrics

The first thing I remember,
looking out the rear window at my father,
getting smaller and smaller as the family car pulled away
so I kept my head down,
through these seasons of darkness,
silent with a smile, but ready to pack up and leave again
"We're giving peace a chance"
said the man on the radio
give up and fade away or walk a path a thousand years long

Driving down a brand new highway,
through an ancient land,
haunted by the ghost of Abraham.

We were blinded by power
in the land of the cedars
victory's a fading vision --- a stillborn dream
we started snaking down that hill
crossing into no man's land
in a masquerade --- as a bloody dragon...our shield and bastion
the last one to survive,
has only dead men for friends,
this wolf keeps walking --- oblivious to the pain

Stepping on past tank tracks,
through a foreign land
haunted by the ghost of Abraham

But now she stands there crying, waving goodbye
cursing god on her lips
wasting my time with this hate and despair
when yesterday's history and tomorrow's more of the same
